This is an African-American cemetery surveyed by Angela Cassidy and Donna Warlick on November 13, 2010.
It was previously surveyed on August 31, 2000, by Wayne N. Carpenter and Betty J. Smith, and it was their excellent
directions that got us there. Many thanks to Wayne and Betty for blazing the trail. From Chattahoochee take Hwy
269 South (Little Sycamore Road) and go 7.5 miles south to Rowan Road and turn right onto it. Go 7/10 mile and
turn left onto a trail through the woods directly opposite from the intersection of Rowan Road and Hovey Smith Road.
Go just over 1/10th mile and turn right on another trail, then go 1/10th mile and the trail stops at the cemetery gates.
The cemetery is about two acres in size; very little of it is used, and it is very well maintained.
